Recently, the Board was presented with the 2024/2025 budget. CFO Jerrold Pidborochynski provided a detailed overview of the budget’s successes and challenges. The Board was pleased to see that their advocacy for funding has seen some success, enabling the budget to address the demands of rising inflation next year. However, the budget faces a challenge due to a projected decrease in enrollment, which will result in reduced funding for the division. Guided by the Strategic Plan, the Board developed a budget that prioritizes maintaining support for students and schools. The Board remains committed to advocating for funding that addresses the unique complexities of our community.
